Lyrics

World, you are a mill
Do you grind away until
Every grain of life is tilled

Girl, you're like a running stream
And every line I've tossed
You've washed it clean
Upon the shore

You're headed for the sea
There's a peace that I've always found
In a lonesome serenade
Such a piece of mind overwhelms
As my every desire's replayed
Oh oh oh in a lonesome serenade

Roll on paddle boats
In a past of mine I've never known
On a lake of polished stone

Take us far away
To an island where she can't be swayed
By another man's embrace

There's a peace that I've always found
In a lonesome serenade
Such a piece of mind overwhelms
As my every desire's replayed
Oh oh oh in a lonesome serenade

Women you've become
Reckon all that growin' pains you some
Still you smile
What's done is done

There's a peace that I've always found
In a lonesome serenade
Such a piece of mind overwhelms
As my every desire's replayed
Oh oh oh like a lonesome serenade
